William Bliss told cops that four men made him carry a nuke -- but he later admitted to being drunk.

His excuse was a dud.

A drunk, naked Iowa City man claimed during his arrest on Monday that four unknown assailants forced him to carry a nuclear bomb.

Johnson County cops were responding to a report of a naked man at about 3:30 a.m. when they found 41-year-old William Bliss, who was "excited" and allegedly smashed at the time, the Press-Citizen reported.

Bliss was allegedly stumbling around near his apartment, but made a break for it after he made the wild nuke claim, cops said. A chase ensued, and one officer was injured as Bliss was taken down.

The nude nuker allegedly had a blood-alcohol level of .111 when he got to jail. He admitted that he'd had nine beers and had been drinking vodka throughout the day, according to Fox 47.

Bliss was slapped with charges of interfering with and injuring an officer and public intoxication.

Cops didn't find a nuclear bomb.

For me, .11 is singing-karaoke drunk. I'm not carrying-a-nuclear-bomb-naked drunk until I'm well up in the .2's.

No shit. That's hardly even drunk. It's sure not "Running Around Naked" drunk.
There's the chance that he didn't get to the jail until hours after his last drink, allowing his blood alcohol level to drop. In rural areas like where I live, just the drive to jail can take hours... then again I'm assuming Iowa City has a jail.

BAC only drops .015 per hour, so even if it was 2 hours before he got processes his BAC wouldn't have been obnoxiously high.

.11 is "I Will Destroy You At Darts" drunk for me.

Shit, I'm .13 on my way too the party. of course, when i get drunk and naked I make sure my wife drives me around to do it. Safety first when your party naked!
honest question..... when you guys were first given those handheld breathalyzers, how often did they come out at parties with your colleagues? How long until it became the hack thing to do where now you guys make fun of the rookie that mentioned grabbing it at a party.

LOL. I don't think it's ever seen as hack. I've seen it done at a few parties for a goof. What many don't realize is those handhelds aren't made to go from person to person over and over. Also, you're supposed to wait at least 15-20 minutes after someone last drank alcohol or else it spikes the reading with residual mouth alcohol. The RMA also damages handheld units.


And now you know.

yeah, always figured it was for goof purposes. I know the RMA could affect the results. didn't realize it also damages the units.

Ive heard some newer ones are better at guarding against it, but in the end the datamaster or intoxilizer back at the PD is the more true reading.

oh without a doubt. I assume that's why they are not admissible in court. I had one read pretty high on me (like 3X the limit) and the nice officer asked me when i last had a sip of beer, when I told him 5 minutes, he waited a bit longer before running it again. Much lower, but still above the limit. He gave me a ride home. Lucky night for me!!!!

Yeah, I remember some kids had an off brand one at the bar one night and they were all like "mines higher than yours dude! You drink like girl". I burst their bubble and informed them "Your's is higher cause you still have half an ounce of vodka in your mouth from that shot 30 seconds ago." We actually had some fun with it. Had them all stop for 10 minutes (was like pulling teeth) then rinse and drink a big glass of water. Their readings were all substantially lower. I told them they all drink like girls before I left. LOL Silly frat boys.
